Dear Friends,

Strengthening communities is the YMCA’s cause. The Y achieves this by offering affordable preschool and school-aged child care, by providing a place for families to become spiritually, mentally, and physically fit, and by providing our local youth opportunities to participate in activities such as gymnastics, swimming, and sports.

Over 19,000 people of all ages and walks of life turn to one of our three facilities each year. They know we are here for them because we have been for the last 50 years. That is why the Hanover Area YMCA is one of the largest community service organizations in the greater Hanover and Littlestown areas.

Our annual campaign, Kids Come First, is how we raise money to provide scholarships for the children, families and adults in our community who seek our services, membership and fellowship. We count on the generosity of our members and partners to keep our doors open to all, regardless of family income. In 2018, we were able to assist 2,663 people with scholarships, and are expecting that level to increase in 2019.

I hope that you will join me in supporting our community.
